Course Information

You will be taught in the award-winning Practice Learning Suite by well-established and published academics that have practice and research experience in social work. 

We are involved in a unique teaching partnership with seven local authorities and two voluntary sector agencies. This means that you will be taught in the classroom by practising social workers who will bring theory to life with their front-line experiences. 

You'll be expertly prepared for social work practice with placements in field, residential, day care, hospital, prison and service user-run settings. Placements will be supported by studies of assessment, intervention, evaluation, safeguarding, evidence-based practice, research and law. Employment skills workshops are provided by the partnership to maximise your chances of securing employment within the partnership at graduation.
